Riverton Silverwolves

The good news for the Riverton Silverwolves — they return all six running backs that they rotate in their successful wing-T system. The bad news — they need to revamp their offensive line.

Regardless of how depleted they are in the trenches, though, coach Mike Miller has high hopes for his team. "They’re a great group of young men," he said. "They work so hard and they’re extremely competitive. They’ve been a fun group to coach, so going into region, my expectations are actually quite high — although I feel like we still have a lot of work [ahead of us]."

Once again, Region 4 will be one of the most hotly contested in the state, but the Silverwolves’ key to winning should lie with their skill players.

"I think our region is one of the toughest in the state," Miller said. "We’re a great group of young men who [just] play together, and we’ve got speed, so we’ve got to utilize our speed if we’re going to be successful."

Miller has a unique take on what would make for a satisfying season: "Their success, to me, will be if they play above and beyond their capabilities, stay together and stay unified as a group," he said.

If Riverton can do that, Miller said, all the other accolades will follow.

Key returner » A starter since his sophomore year, running back Cam Christensen will be looked at as a focal point in the Silverwolves’ vaunted wing-T attack.

Player to watch » Cayden Jones will be another talented athlete to watch coming out of the backfield for Riverton.

Biggest hole » The Silverwolves’ offensive line returns just one starter and only one other player with varsity experience.

Need to know » Riverton won the Dixie State camp over the summer, where it faced off against some talent schools fro the Las Vegas area.
